Dr Nomy is an experienced airline medical doctor who worked for Emirates Airline for over 9 years in Dubai. Part of his role there was to ensure passengers with complex health issues, chronic illnesses and mobility problems could safely travel to their onward destinations.
Occasionally passengers required help simply with wheelchairs, others needing supplemental oxygen when flying, whilst others became ill abroad and needed repatriating home. The 'fitness to fly service' offered by Flying Medicine can assess all passengers wanting to fly whether this be for circumstances like simple fractures, Pregnancy, infectious diseases like chickenpox, previous DVT, heart attacks, strokes, sleep apnoea, congenital heart problems, disabilities, mobility issues, fear of flying or even travelling with a terminal illness to visit relatives, friends or for hospital assessments. Help and advice on how to manage these issues safely or where to go for assessments usually means passengers can be confident when travelling.
